Mid-Winter's Eve Blog Hop & Giveaway!

I'm very excited to be participating in my very first blog hop & giveaway co-hosted by the I'm A Reader Not a Writer blog site. You, the lovely reader, gets to try for the chance to win one of four books by four fabulous indie authors. Drumrolls please...

1) Becoming: Daughters of Saraqael Book One by Raine Thomas

Description from Amazon: Every three years, Amber Hopkins explodes. Okay, not a blown-to-smithereens explosion, but whatever it is always hurts like hell and leaves her life a shambles. She's already worked her way through five foster placements, and she's doing whatever she can to avoid getting blasted into a sixth.
As her eighteenth birthday approaches and she feels the strange and powerful energy building, disaster looms. When the inevitable explosion occurs, her life gets its biggest shakeup yet. She'll not only learn how her fellow foster and best friend, Gabriel, really feels about her, but she'll discover that she isn't really without family. To top it all off, she'll finally find out why she's having the power surges: she isn't entirely human.

He turns Sloane against her will, and whisks her away to his underground city. Enemies quickly become friends as Sloane struggles against her attraction to Aden, and resists her growing loyalties to the creatures that ruined her life.
